Doughnut chain Krispy Kreme is set to double the number of its UK stores to nearly 100 by 2016.
The company currently has 47 sites and a presence in 200 Tesco stores. It is set to open 10 new sites a year over the next five years.
The news comes on the back of a 1.4% increase in like-for-like sales and total sales of £33.4m, compared with £29.7m the previous year.
Krispy Kreme first came to the UK in October 2003 through a concession in Harrods department store.
